High Impact Practices in Teaching & Learning: Foundations and Characteristics - Part 1

 Facilitator: Judy Sylva

The High Impact Practices in Teaching & Learning workshop series includes opportunities to explore high-impact educational practices focused on the conditions that increase student engagement and deeper states of learning to promote short and long term outcomes related to student success. The first of five sessions in the series, Foundations & Characteristics Part 1, will provide an overview of the definitions, characteristics, and impacts of so-called high impact practices. We will explore some of the literature that informs the practice and areas for future research. In this session, participants will have the opportunity to review the rationale for expanding access to high-impact educational practices by integrating one or more of the eight critical elements of HIPs in their classes.

High Impact Practices in Teaching & Learning: Learning Experiences - Part 2

Facilitator: Diane Podolske for Service-Learning

Service-learning at CSUSB is a high-impact teaching method that promotes student learning through active participation in meaningful and planned service experiences in the community that is substantively related to course content. Students enhance their understanding of course content, general knowledge, sense of civic responsibility, self-awareness, and commitment to the community through reflective activities. This workshop will develop community-engaged online courses, embed service-learning experiences to an existing course, and design reflection activities for virtual settings. While this presentation focuses on virtual service learning, most of the information shared can be adopted to in-person or hybrid course instruction.

Inclusive Practices in Assessment

 Facilitator: Jacqueline Romano

Are your assessment approaches inclusive of diverse learners? How can you improve student learning through authentic assessments that show what students know and can do from a culturally responsive approach? Assessments play a role in maximizing student achievement, but also, they can have a negative impact when students’ cultural, linguistic, and diverse needs are not considered. In this informal and friendly 1 hour session, we will explore and learn what culturally responsive assessment is, the role that culture and students background play in assessment, and approaches to better address student learning ensuring every student succeeds regardless of their cultural, linguistic, and diverse backgrounds in higher education.
